    Another Power One from Max

    Loneliness and isolation have been common feelings lately as live through this Corona virus pandemic. However, we are never truly alone. Max Lucado talks about trusting in the miracle of God's presence and power in his latest book,You Are Never Alone. We often wonder if God cares, and if he will help us and answer our prayers. But, we can have courage because God is near and will give us strength.

    This timely message from Max was filled with personal stories, connections to the Bible, and life application advice. Max is a gifted story teller, and his books always pull me in and keep my attention. I pulled this book out before going to bed in the evening to find comfort and conviction. Each chapter is short and manageable, perfect for me as a mom on the go. There are also questions for reflection in the back of the book, so this book could easily be read and discussed in a small group setting.

    Some of the quotes that really stuck out to me from this book were:

    "It simply falls to us to believe - to believe that Jesus is king of each and every situation. So make your specific request, and trust him to do, not what you want, but what is best.

    God is..."Ever present. Not occasional or sporadic help. You'll never be put on hold or told to check back later. He's never too busy, preoccupied, or away on a prior engagement."

    "Keep running the race. And as you run, be assured. A Friend is waiting for you at the finish line. When you cross it, he'll catch you in his arms. Don't be surprised if he says again what he said then: 'It is finished.' "

    "Jesus is the hero here. He is the one who found Peter, called Peter, orchestrated the fish catch for Peter, built the fire for Peter, cooked breakfast for Peter, took the confession of Peter, and recommissioned Peter. If the distance between Christ and Peter consisted of a hundred steps, Jesus took ninety-nine and a half. But Peter still had to take his step."

    "We are not weather vanes whipped about by the winds of fate and chance. We are the children of a mighty and good God who cares for us."

    If you never read a book by Max Lucado, this would be a great one to start with. You will find hope and encouragement no matter what you are facing in life. If you have read Max Lucado's other books, you will love this one too. Pick up a copy for yourself, and for a friend too!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher, in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

    You Are Never Alone

    Max Lucado brings the promises of the Lord and Jesus to us through the miracles that John wrote about: that He is with us, that we can take all our needs to Him, that He will not leave us, that His help is there, we are not alone, He comes to us and more. The writing of Max Lucado draws us right in front of the Lord and Jesus. I found as I read, "You Are Never Alone" that there were three areas of need in my life. First, I needed to stop holding onto various things. Second, that I have kept putting aside things that I now realize I need to take care of. And third, that I have pushed some things aside far enough that I was not aware of, and now I need to work on them. Bu seeing, acknowledging, and starting to do the work needed, "You Are Never Alone" has given me strength, peace, comfort, and a way to now take the steps that are needed. A quote from chapter one sums it up, " Life happens when we believe. We find strength beyond our strength...we see solutions beyond our solutions...Belief happens when we place our confidence in God. It is a decision to lean entirely upon the strength of a living and loving Savior." I thank Max Lucado for writing, "You Are Never Alone" for giving the needed encouragement in these unexpected days, and for the help I need in my journey of faith and belief. Reviewed by: Bonnie Hall

    I am honored to have received an advance reading copy of this book and am able to share with you this honest review. You Are Never Alone is both relevant to the time in which we live as well as insightful. Max Lucado highlights the miracles of Jesus from the book of John while reminding us that, "John recorded them, not to impress us, but to urge us to believe in the tender presence and mighty power of Christ ... God can carry you!" He challenges each of us to, "...offer a simple prayer and entrust the problem to Christ." If you are feeling drained by your current circumstances, you will be encouraged by the meaningful messages shared throughout You Are Never Alone! It certainly is a refreshing read for such a time as this!

    Max Lucado uses the miracles of Jesus to illustrate that we are never alone in our journey through life. The miracles of Jesus used in Max's book You are Never Alone are found in the Gospel of John - from the first miracle of turning water into wine at Cana to the restoration of Peter after Jesus's Resurrection God's Presence and Power are illustrated.

    Max uses his easy to understand writing style and stories (personal and other inspirational stories) to demonstrate God's Presence in our lives during the good and bad times. He shows how God cares for us through these stories- for example in one story Max is taking a walk with his dog and granddaughter when he ends up rescuing his granddaughter from a thicket of bushes just as God is here to help us and give us hope in our daily lives. You are Never Alone is full of encouragement and hope. Max Lucado shows us how to relate and apply Scripture to daily events and current situations of our lives- illustrating how we can apply God's Promises to our lives and find Hope in our trials, darkness, and despair.

    The book includes Questions for Reflection on each chapter allowing for deeper thought and connection with God and Scripture.

    I recommend this book for everyone looking for hope, encouragement, and help in the struggles of daily life. I received an advanced copy of this book for my honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
